God’s power transforms hearts. We are launched to go out and partner with him in a lifestyle demonstrating his powerful signs and wonders, setting hearts on fire with his love.

Hungry for a lifestyle filled with the Holy Spirit? Look no further than the Ottawa Encounter School of Ministry!

“Jesus calls us to a supernatural lifestyle of faith, which demonstrates the goodness of God. If you know in your heart that Jesus didn’t die for a powerless Church, and you’re looking for the MORE promised by God, then the Encounter School of Ministry is going to radically renew your mind and transform your life.”

~Patrick Reis, Co-Founder of Encounter Ministries, Executive Director

“The Encounter School of ministry is a part-time two year training school for disciples who believe that God calls Christians to demonstrate supernatural love and ministry in the marketplace and in their families.”

~Fr. Mathias Thelen, Co-Founder of Encounter Ministries, President
